MSc Quantum Information Science & Technology (QIST)

Quantum Information Science and Technology encompasses the understanding, design, construction and investigation of quantum information processing systems, such as quantum computers, quantum communication networks, and quantum sensors. The objective of the MSc programme Quantum Information Science & Technology is to provide its students with in-depth and combined knowledge from the four disciplines (quantum) physics, mathematics, electrical engineering, and computer science in order to enable them to stay at the forefront of fundamental knowledge of quantum technology and develop practical applications in the field.

This MSc programme is designed for students with a Bachelor’s degree in Physics, Mathematics, Electrical Engineering, Computer Science or Astronomy.

The Master’s programme in Quantum Information Science & Technology is a cooperation between two Dutch universities:

  • Leiden University
    • Faculty of Science
  • Delft University of Technology
    • Faculty of Applied Sciences
    • Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics & Computer Science
    • QuTech Research Institute
